Basic Information
Author: Steve Ludington, Dennis P. Cox, Barry C. Moring, Kenneth W. Leonard
Description:In order to delineate permissive areas that include Cenozoic volcanic rocks that are buried by as much as 1,000 m of younger deposits, we analyzed their surface and subsurface distribution. The result of this analysis is shown on plate 5-1,which depicts the Cenozoic volcanic rocks of Nevada in a way specifically designed to support this resource analysis.The primary sources of information were Stewart and Carlson (1976 and 1978) and Stewart (1980), but concepts and data from more recent studies, especially Sargent and Roggensack (1984) and Best and others (1989b), were also incorporated.
